Something Exciting, a Winner and a Fabulous Kit


Something Exciting...

I have been invited to join the first design team for Elle's Studio! I am honored and so terribly excited to join this group of talented women...

The six Design Team members for the first half of 2010 are:







Elle's Studio designs the cutest labels and tags that I have ever seen. If you haven't checked out their products, you are missing out! Fun tags, labels, clear stamps digi downloads and the most perfect calendars for scrapbooking projects.

A Winner..

The winner of the Pink Paislee stamps is Julie! Thank you for becoming a fan of Purple Cows!



I adore this kit, full of pretty little things, Jenni Bowlin, Melissa Frances and October Afternoon~some of my favorite companies.


That is not real stitching in the card above, it is a Sassafras sticker and I used a craft knife to cut out the center so that the pretty Jenni Bowlin paper would show.


I have had this double frame laying around for a few months, waiting for the right project. I used October Afternoon and trimmed it with some Sassafras. The sweet wood cut bird is from Kim Hesson's Etsy Shop. I have a few other projects in the Freehand Scraps Gallery . Please take a moment and check out the entire gallery, it won't disappoint!

When I was teaching, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel to NYC (for two summers) and take classes on teaching writing at Columbia University. Lucy Calkins and Teacher's College have put together an intense program that really transformed my teaching.

I went with a special group of friends that are very dear to my heart. Now all of us are at home taking care of our wee ones! Who would have thought that back then?
